Swallow Awareness Day 2020

Be sure to mark Wednesday 18 March 2020 in your diaries — the date for this year’s Swallowing Awareness Day!

Join us for another great day of campaigning to raise awareness of dysphagia and how SLTs support people with eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties.

Last year’s campaign reached 2.46 million people in more than 55 countries as they took to social media to share their activities with others. Don’t forget to post your news and pictures on your social media channels this year, using the hashtag #swallowaware2020 and tagging @RCSLT.

For the second year running, the 2020 campaign will be held in the middle of NHS Nutrition and Hydration Week (16-20 March), so do encourage your multidisciplinary colleagues to participate too. If you enjoyed campaigning last year and want to again, or if you’d like to take part for the first time, you can find more details and information on our campaign toolkit pages.
